I was fortunate to attend the Magical Mystery (bus) Tour of the Mountain View Whisman School District. Below is one (of many) video clips taken during a morning tour of the district. Our tour guide was Dr. Maurice Ghysels, the Superintendent of the Mountain View Whisman School District. In this video, he shares some of his thoughts about Crittenden Middle School.
Note: I took this video a few months ago (fall 2008). The Mountain View Whisman School District was hosting a morning event designed to inform local Realtors about the benefits of the MVWSD and the Mountain View Educational Foundation (MVEF).
According to the MVEF web site, “the MVEF provides financial support for essential enrichment programs and educational materials district wide, for which not other funding source exists.” MVEF is a non-profit charity run by parents and community volunteers in an effort to raise money for the Arts, Science, Physical Education and other programs that don’t receive funding. Their revised goal for 2008-2009 is $300,000 or approximately $360. per student. Please see their website for further information and/or to donate.
